Are they still paying the state employees with IOUs?
Fuck you and your high speed rail.
Fuck you, it's taxes. Anyone who voted for this asshole should be kicked in the cunt.
I wish CA would fall into the Pacific.
It's hard to comprehend such a beautiful state could be filled with so many fucking assholes.
Typical. Come up with a multibillion dollar
plan and no guarantee of funding.
I was thinking the same thing not too long ago. How can a state where you can surf in the morning, ski in the afternoon and then party in the some of the best clubs in America all in the same day, be filled with shitbags.
I know a big part of the problem is an element of interlopers that are voting in politicians to insure more free shit for everybody!! I thought the Governator would really turn that state around. He just couldn't cut social programs because it was political suicide. Well look at you now fuckos.
Can't wait to watch all those "polluters" move to Texas, and California lose more revenue than it gains from this.
And then, if there was a God, he'd change the wind patterns so that it only blows from the East.
Didn't Mister Universe sign that global warming law the article mentions?
You start taxing "polluters" and they'll just leave the state like everyone else has. And if this was such a great idea let private companies build it.
That would work, but only if the government cut funding to all mass transit systems. Otherwise, you're asking a private company to try and compete with a government transit system. It's like playing sports against the referee. You're not going to win.
Legalize the weed and let them pay for it.
Stop spending money you don't have. Inventing things to tax isn't a way to do anything.
Hemp. Its what made America great. Years ago.
This thing is such a mess and they should really abandon the idea. They passed a $50 billion bond to build this thing, then later came out and said it's actually going to cost $100 billion... before construction even started. Also, instead of starting the rail in a major metropolitan area, they're going to start it in the central valley from Bakersfield to some shitty ghost town... so WHEN the idea is finally abandoned, we may have a 10 mile HSR that 44 people can use to commute on. At least if they started it in one of the cities it could be used locally if (when) the entire project is abandoned.
thank god Ill be able to go from Fresno to Bakersfield in a timely efficient manner....what a waste of fucking money. I live in Fresno and I want to go to LA, or Vegas not fucking Bakersfield. Its just another wasteland like Fresno is.
I doubt the rail will even get to Fresno. The first leg is going to be built between Bakersfield and some abandoned mining town. Because building the first leg between San Diego and LA, or San Francisco and Sacramento makes no sense. Why have something that could be used if the plans fall through?
BTW, condolences for living in Fresno. I have a brother at Fresno State and family in Visalia and Reedley, and Fresno might be the last California city I'd want to live in (behind maybe Modesto and Oakland).
And you can be sure the final cost will be at least 3 times the original estimate
Huh, the family I have in California live in Bakersfield and Fresno, weird.
I'd take Modesto over Stockton any day of the week. Actually for pure shit-hole-ness in California, might I submit Barstow?
And for as much as I might think the opportunities offered by CAHSR would be great for me careerwise, I've lost all faith that we will ever see anything practical come of it.
On the other hand, this shows promise.
